Tiny island, Penrhyn Llŷn
18/52 for the group 2018 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: R is for Risky

It was quite risky climbing down the cliff and then making our way to this tiny island. There is a sort of path down from the cliff top as long as you find the right spot. You can also get to the island without getting your feet wet, as long as you go at low tide. But beware! Don't get caught out because it would be a cold and miserable place to be trapped by the rising tide!

I must have been inhabited once, hundreds if not thousands of years ago. This island is known as Dinas Bach (Small Stronghold) and the apparently smaller island a little way along the coast is Dinas Fawr (Large Stronghold). (See map.) So the names must derive from the sizes of the settlements, not the sizes of the islands, both of which come into the "tiny" category. But they would have been a great defensive position in more uncertain times.

It looks like an intriguing little spot ... the kid in me would love to explore it. :)
